  • Welcome, Author Michele Arris

    Today, I’m so excited to introduce you to award-winning author and fellow Tule girl, Michele Arris. Michele has always had a fondness for romance and happy endings. “I love to write stories where my characters are guaranteed their happily ever after.” When Michele isn’t seated in front of her computer, shaping bad-ass alpha heroes who meet their match in strong-willed heroines, she enjoys reading, watching period classics, actually looks forward to working out, and loves spending time with family and friends–simply enjoying life.

  • Fun Radio Interview!

    I’m a radio star! Well, okay, maybe not a star, but I did have a fun interview with Patricia W. Fischer on Readers Entertainment Radio yesterday. She was delightful, asked great questions, and we chatted like old friends. Fastest 45 minutes I’ve spent in a long time. We talked books and reading and wine and writing and wine and new releases and wine… It was awesome! Take a listen and if you haven’t preordered The Baby Contract yet, now’s the time!

  • Welcome, Author Ann B. Harrison

    I love having guests here on the blog! Best-selling author, Ann B Harrison has the perfect backdrop for her imagination to run wild, the lush wine growing region of the Hunter Valley in Australia. She alternates her time between writing small town and western stories and has a passion for second chance romances. She’s often caught staring out the window of her office where her red Ragdoll cat Benson owns the keyboard and demands much of her attention. When she’s not writing, you’ll find her cooking (she’s fallen in love with her new Thermomix and doesn’t need much encouragement to try new recipes) or walking her dog, Chilli. She often…

  • Happy Independence Day!

    I considered writing a long post about July 4 and what it meant back when and what it means now, but someone else already did that. So go here and read Liz Flaherty’s message for July 4. I’ll wait. I’m simply going to share this photo from July 4 a couple of years ago–Son and Grandboy celebrating America’s independence exactly the way Husband and Son did more years ago than I care to mention. I love our lake life together and how much Son wants to share that world with his son. One of the blessed freedoms we have–to be able to share our history and our traditions with new…

  • Celebrating Mom’s Way

    I was just in the kitchen putting baked beans together and it occurred to me how much of my Mom’s way of doing things I’ve brought to my own adulthood. Like, for instance, baked beans. Mother was always horrified at the idea of dumping a can of baked beans into a pot and warming it up right from the can. Instead, she drained the beans, put them in a casserole dish, added barbecue sauce, mustard, a chopped onion, and brown sugar. Then she placed two strips of bacon across the top in an X and put them in the oven. She baked them until they were dry enough that when…
